812. Independent Chronicle, 20 March 17881

Extract of a letter from a Gentleman, of a respectable character, in Hallowell, County of Lincoln, to his friend now in Boston

“I think his Excellency has done himself the highest honor in the good opinion of the people in general in this quarter of the State, by his conduct in the late Convention.—His speech at the opening of the session of the General Court is inimitable. You may depend on the most decided exertions here in his favour.

“Mr. Adams stands first on the list of candidates for Lieut. Governour.”
